Review: DiorShow Mascara & Drugstore Dupe

I got the Christian DiorShow mascara a couple of weeks ago at Sephora, I was immediately drawn to the large brush. Below, I have a mini review on this mascara and also a possible drugstore dupe. Please keep reading and do not forget to share your thoughts or questions. Thank you.


-large bristles provide a good amount of volume

-comes in a large tube, more product

-formula gives great length


-$24, expensive

-formula is drying after 3 weeks of purchase

-does not hold eye lash curl

If you are interested in trying this mascara for yourself, you should checkout Revlon Grow Luscious. You can find it at drugstores for $8 (price may vary) . The size of the brushes are slightly the same, and formula gives my eye lashes the same length & volume.

Picture Book!

One of my favorite things to do is to take pictures. Pictures capture memories and pictures can tell a story. Hence, a picture book is a great way to tell your story. A couple of weeks a go, I was uploading pictures onto iPhoto on my MacBook Pro and I decided to try out some of the cool features. I created a photo book, for fun. At first, I was not sure if I was going to get the book published but I had a great time making it. It took some dedicated time and effort to organize and chose the right pictures. After, all my hard work and seeing the book in the form of a slide show, I proceed with the order. A week later, I got my book in the mail and I fell in love with final result. I think this would make a great gift for a friend or a family member. It makes for a great coffee table book. If you don't have an MacBook, there are other websites that offer the same features & product. 

Review & Swatch: MAC Earthly Harmony Nail Lacquer

This color, is from MAC's Fall/ Winter collection with Jin Soi. All the colors are beautiful, and in the website's swatches they all appear to have specs of glitter. Earthly Harmony is described as a frost, muted taupe with shimmer. In person, the color is more greyish taupe and the shimmers are only noticeable in direct sunlight. It also is not much of a frost, but rather a cream color. As for the formula, I really am impressed. I have always heard negative comments about their formula. I am not sure if it has changed but it's a great consistency and creamy. I also, think it dries fast which is a good thing. I hate nail polishes that take forever to dry. I have to say I am in love with color and it will probably be my every day fall color. Don't be fooled by the swatch on the site, you can't see the glitter. That being said, I do recommend this nail polish if you are looking for a great grey or taupe nail polish.

Perfect Pink Nails

I love this nail polish color by Essie Van Dgo, it's the perfect pink. It's a great pop of color for this new fall weather. I think it's great to wear on a night out & also subtle enough for school or work. Do you agree? What's your favorite Essie nail polish?
